As a few more days passed by, I’m getting used to the Miami lifestyle. Not going to front, since the weather hasn’t been as favorable, it affected our daily events. Heck, I didn’t even get to wear my swim suit! It dropped to mid-40’s and apparently, this is the coldest it’s ever been. I’m so happy I brought my leather jacket, otherwise I wouldn’t have managed! I gotta admit though, it’s interesting to see how the locals react to the cold ?
My cousin and I were longing for something to eat and the scent of Mexican cuisine drew us in immediately. Located at the corner of Espanola Way and Washington Ave, Havana 1957 provided us with the perfect meal of the day.
I had the house special which included the traditional spanish yellow rice and beans, roasted chicken and a salad on the side. It was very filling and an amazing dish at that one. Additionally, the staff was super friendly and their traditional attire made everything seem even more authentic.
Espanola Way was an area filled with other spanish restaurants and shops. It seems like a great street to experience fine dining and nightlife, as I constantly look passed the area a few times during the day on my way back to the hotel.
Next day we decided to tour around Ocean Drive and visit the beach once more. It was a bit cooler that day, which explains the sweater, however the day was relaxing nonetheless. I heard that during Spring break or Summer when school is out and vacation is most common, Ocean Drive is THE place for nightlife. There are plenty of bars, small hotels, the beach and canopies with hosts giving out free mojitos with any meal.
Overall, I had a wonderful time in Miami. I browsed about the tourist areas and spent some time with family which is the best time anyone can have. Can’t wait to return with my besties to experience the nightlife, meet new people, and eat, eat, eat 🙂
